I like Ike because although he was a military man, he knew how dangerous the power of profiting from wars could be.
Here’s a swatch from President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s “see you later” speech to the American people. Now it’s 50 years later, and his words are still haunting, especially in light of how they’ve been ignored. Today, we’ve got us a trillion-bucks-a-year big business in defense!
Enjoy this liberal peacenik’s rant. One can only imagine what Ike would have thought of our military industrial complex today.
